The People Demand a King

When Samuel was old, the elders of Israel demanded a king to rule over them like all the other nations.   Although displeasing to Samuel, the Lord told him to “hearken to the voice of the people; for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me, that I should not be King over them.”  He was also to  solemnly warn them  of what it would truly cost them to have a king…but the people said  “NO!!! We will have a king over us…and to fight our battles.” Saul was chosen first to be king but was rejected when sin and pride started to reign in his heart.  David was anointed by Samuel to be the next king but he had to wait many years before he could actually rule.
